About this recipe: Cabbage and onions, cooked in bacon fat, and served with a splash of cider vinegar – not exactly healthy, but very tasty!
We used a big enough cabbage but between four of us, we would have eaten a lot more. I used 2 onions (one red, one brown) and left out the sugar and it was delicious. I'll definitely make it again. - 11 Feb 2014
OMG Jen - Thank you so much. This review is from a person who had to go outside when my mom or anyone cooked cabbage! Could not stand the smell. This recipe is great. The only thing I did different and proably everyone else knew to do this - but I have never, ever cooked cabbage - I did add salt and pepper and covered it to help wilt the cabbage faster. Not for too long and when thoroughly cooked, it was still a little crisp and delicious. I loved it and my family did as well. I am 67 y/o and considered to be a good cook in my circle, but this recipe absolutely tops all of mine. Thank you so very much. A fan! - 01 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I am not sure what those who gave the recipe "mediocre" or bad ratings were expecting. As one can see, it is a very simple recipe with a very simple result. I would not omit the vinegar, as in such a small amount compared to the volume of cabbage, i dont feel that it could be offensive. but i do think it adds a subtle and important flavor. I also suggest increasing the amount of bacon to your taste. I mean, its bacon, so the more the merrier. i used 5 slices. also, this is one of those dishes that makes for leftovers that get better and better. - 23 Feb 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
